caravan: Whatever happened to the Nikon 850 ?

Newer and more shiny toy appeared.

I'm not inclined toward Sony cameras but this looks damn impressive. AF joystick (finally!), 14bit RAW for electronic shutter, 5-axis IBIS, works with Canon glass with Meatabones, full sensor width 4K video, weather seals, double SD cards, 600 shot battery and better EVF just to name few that caught my eye.

These are mighty specs and now I am really curios how the 2018's Nikon and Canon FF mirrorless offerings will look like.

Woodyz: I am perfectly happy with my no-feature Sony A7. Barebone full frame.

That 24MP FF sensor and a couple Zeiss lenses will be good probably for another decade.

Why would A7 break down? There's no reason for it not to work for a decade in usual shooting conditions.

Will be bought by a few hipsters but that's about it.

gatorengineer: I would rather have had a 35mm F1.7/1.8 that wasnt the size of a bus, and was priced affordably

I agree. Even this lens is fine as there are more choices for everyone, but for a7/A9 a good F/1.8 lens at 300-400 grams and around 50-60 mm in length would be more interesting. Essentially half of what they made including the price.

zamorac: Pentax Q! What a blast from the past! Well done Metabones. Now stop playing and make something that will be bought by more than two people.

BTW why not make medium format to Sony FE full frame booster or something like that? Instead we get this.

"Gamechanger" is an overused word these days.

24fps? This thing will produce hundreds if not thousands of images in a matter of minutes. How much time would anyone need to spend reviewing all these images?

lattesweden: Now that is real street photography...

This is not street photography, this was staged with actors walking or standing where she told them to.

mxx: Why the different names for North America and the rest of the world? It's just a jumble of letters and numbers anyway.

MIke, TZ80 is previous generation. This one (in this article) only has two names (haha) ZS70 for north america and TZ90 for the rest of the world.

Spectro: That is it, getting a new hobby.

It's too late for me. I cycle with a backpack full of cameras and lenses.

TLDR after the first sentence. "Forever lenses" from a company that changed three lens mounts in the fast five years? Oh wow!

Can't stand the HDR look.

Is it a typo in specifications or this camera accepts only MICRO SD cards? Micro SD is way to small and fiddly for regular use.

10cm lenght and 360g weight at 2.8 constant aperture... I hope IQ is worth the $$$. Compare that to Canon and Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 behemots...

In reply to:

(unknown member): I just figured out Instagram. It feeds on two human desires: to be thought of as creative or meaningful and to have instant feedback. By making a photo look old it automatically appears to be a part of the past, lending it the kind of reverance only conferred by age. So they can take a picture that suddenly looks old, meaningful, and more creative than some realistic looking photo would look.
Those people are going to be disappointed in twenty years when they wish they had a lot of photos that looked like actual photos from a period in their life.....each generation of camera and the uniqueness of each age is more than enough flavor in a photograph. They're going to realize how they warped and butchered their memories.

This is one of the best comments I read on the whole hipsta-insta-photo style. Those photos might look appealing now, but in 20 years people will wonder why their photos look like something from thier parents youth.

So you needed nothing less than 7D to take this pic?

zamorac: Have you seen his comment?

"I can't say that it is pleasure for me to read your embittered comments, guys, but it is expectable situation for any winner in any challenge. Always will be people, who are ready to support challenger (as my friends supported me) and always will be people who are ready to pour some sh!t..."

This guy even has courage to defy us after obviously cheating in challenge! And this is not onky cheating, if he really gets Tamron lens, this is theft. I seriously hope DPR staff will disqualify this and other top ranked photos that received fake positives!

On basis of common sense. It's something you'll never understand.
